What an amazing place Valley View Luxury Retreat is. It's more than just a place to stay, it's a place to unwind and relax in beautiful surrounds with amazing views and see the variety of wild life that call it home. The beds are comfortable and the finishing touches to all rooms are second to none. There are two spa's to enjoy, one inside and the other outside where you can enjoy the views and have a 'chat' to the kangaroos that come and watch. There is so much to enjoy at Valley View and the feeling of relaxation washes over you when you step foot on the propery.
I stayed at Valley View Retreat with my family for a couple of nights and I was very sad to leave when my time was up. I was absolutely blown away on arrival. The pictures don't do it justice. I was even recommended to come here by a friend, but I still didn't realise just how amazing it was going to be. The views are stunning, I don't think I have seen anything like it. So crisp and open and it felt like I breathed fresh air for the first time in my life! When we arrived we had wallabys and kangaroos great us, they were so friendly and was incredible spending time with them in their natural habitat. The kids really enjoyed it - there were board games, heaps of movies and best of all, lots for them to do outside which is where kids should be. It was fully contained- right down to oil and tomato sauce in the cupboard, it was like we were staying with a friend or family member. All the detail that the owners put into this place, the welcome platter, the chocs on the end of the bed, the spaghetti in the cupboard! They even have a wood fire pizza oven inside and outside, with all the cook wear to go with it. The spa was clean and heated and ready for us on arrival. The owners were so lovely to deal with, they wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay and they were so caring and lovely people. I recommend Valley View to anyone looking for a getaway you won't regret it. You will be invigorated and full of energy and inspiration by the time you leave. For international travellers wanting an Aussie experience, this is the ultimate place. I highly recommend and I will be coming back all the time, my new favourite place!
Very well equipped, professionally run venue. Perfect way to get away from it all and just relax and unwind
If you ever wish to retreat from the world this is the place. Sitting on top of the mountain over looking the Hunter Valley across to the ocean beyond.
Superb accommodation - up-to-date without being pretentious. Here you can relax, sit and read, play billiards, have a spa, feed the resident kangaroos and birdlife - it is amazing. The added extras included are way beyond generous. Never before have I seen such a well stocked pantry and fridge. Normally you only receive a couple of tea bags. A weekend is not enough you need to stay longer and then you'll never want to leave. Highly recommend.
This place was the perfect way to spend New Years Eve and it was wonderful place to take overseas visitors to to see the wild life literally on your doorstep. The description of facilities was accurate and correct.
Janine was great to deal with and she did everything possible to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. If I had any questions or issues she always very quick to help and respond. I have already recommended this place to friends and family.
Far from the hustle and bustle of city life this retreat is a wonderful getaway for all age groups. We were a group of seven women who enjoyed all the facilities this retreat offers. The home is large with every convenience one could wish for. Barbecue and Pizza oven, indoor and outdoor spa, generous bedrooms and lounge -dining room, open fire in the winter plus reverse cycle air. conditioning. Also the pantry was stocked with basic needs which may have been overlooked while shopping. Eaglereach Wilderness Resort, next door, has a restaurant, tennis court, swimming pool, and a lake where you can fish. All of which are there for your enjoyment. We loved it all!
